Less than 30 minutes northwest of Phoenix, you'll find Sun City -- one of the most established areas in the metro area. The homes in Sun City first started going up in 1960, and developer Del Webb has been expanding the community ever since.
So, what do you need to know if you're thinking about browsing the homes for sale in Sun City?
- It's got small-town flavor and big-city amenities
Roughly 40,000 active adults call Sun City home, so you'll never have to worry about traffic jams or feeling crowded here. But that doesn't mean this is a sleepy little community! The big-city lights of Phoenix are just a short drive away, and Sun City itself is home to everything from golf courses, to arts and crafts clubs, to concerts. Living here is like being on vacation 24/7!
- The homes come in every shape, size, and price range
The homes for sale in Sun City appeal to a wide range of budgets and tastes. Whether you're looking for an affordable, older charmer, or a new, trendy home with a view of the lake, you'll find it here. And, if you're looking to downsize, there are plenty of apartments and garden homes to choose from.
- The architecture is unique
Whether you're looking at a home that was built 40 years ago or 10 years ago, you'll find that it doesn't have any interior load-bearing walls. That means you won't have any trouble knocking down walls and doing other major renovations -- meaning it's easy to turn one of the homes for sale in Sun City into your dream home!
- The property taxes are teeny-tiny
One of the best things about buying a home in Sun City is the tax setup. Because this community is for people 55+, you won't have to worry about paying any school taxes. And, because Sun City isn't actually a city -- instead, it's a census-designated place -- you won't have to pay any city taxes. When you look at it that way, you may be able to devote more of your budget to your home purchase -- and REALLY live in the lap of luxury!
